So, to the average Joe – or me a few months ago – the word “Tensabarrier” means nothing.
So when I started hearing the word around the office, I thought – was it a new band on the Emo scene? Some exotic cocktail that Dave discovered in his travels? An internal name for a “new system” to manage projects that our CEO wanted us to start implementing (sorry Tom!)? What did it mean that “Tensabarrier” was “coming”? Da-Dum….Da-Dum…..dadadadadadaaaa (yes, that’s from Jaws – try it again!).
Well, over the past few months, I have learned that Tensabarrier is a brand name, like “Kleenex” to tissue, but for crowd control posts with retractable belts. You know the ones you see at airports? Or as you wait in line for popcorn at a theater? Or that keep the masses organized at your local bank?
On one of my many, many, many, recent cross country trips I became vehemently aware of the presence of these types of crowd control systems in my everyday life. As I was in line for security in Seattle, I noticed that brands like Tensabarrier and Beltrac really make the world go round. They keep fights from breaking out between strangers anxious to make their flights. They tell us where to go and what to do. They keep parents sane as they teach their children lessons in patience at Disney World. They keep the popcorn flowing and buttery at theaters across the country.
And since, as always, we want to do our part to contribute to the sanity and peace of Americans everywhere – of course it is purely altruistic and has little to do with the fact that crowd control systems are in high demand from many of our commercial clients.
So, the next time you think your wasting your time waiting, stop and think of us and how KegWorks is helping save the world one retractable belt (and one beer) at a time.
